So what is GLOW Fest?

GLOW Fest is a new circus arts and lifestyle event launching in March 2021, in the relaxed surf town of Crescent Head on the mid-north coast of NSW. It will offer circus and flow arts workshops, showcase performances, fire spinning circles, children’s activities and entertainment, and art installations, performances and displays.

Combining the best parts of a circus arts festival with Burning Man culture and creativity, this will truly be a multi-faceted arts event. Family-friendly and community-driven, it will also include a strong focus on sustainability, participation, inclusion and connection.

The daytime program will feature almost 100 workshops across 3 jam-packed days, taught by some of the top flow and circus arts performers across the Tasman, alongside stimulating discussions focused on the arts, festivals, professional development and the environment.

Nightly showcases will deliver mind-blowing skills and feats of amazement, uniquely programmed and presented just for GLOW Fest. Australia's biggest art car, Bhima the fire-breathing dragon, will serve as the stunning centrepiece for arts, entertainment and aerial performance through the event.

Saturday is family day! Bring the kids on a discounted family ticket and be treated with roving performances, kids shows, face-painting, a kids/youth workshop program and a fire performance showcase from our headline acts!

And wait, there's more... but you'll have to see it to believe it! This is a limited capacity, boutique gathering - so don't miss out!

Full event: 5 days including camping accommodation (non-powered and powered sites, or dorm bed), car pass and fire spinning fuel.
Day tickets: Friday day and night, and full day Saturday/Sunday (family discount available on Saturday).

Like champagne that’s lost its chill, life can lose its thrill.

Suspense and surprise go south in North by Northwest, substituted with cheesy cheer east of Edam.

Infectiously entertaining and rivetingly alive, Wayside Bride is a boldly embroidered quilt...

The lights go down. The cicadas scream. The lights come up and we wait for the play to begin....

Despite Mozart's start as a child prodigy and his fame spanning 225 years, his role in this show...
